(UPDATED COVERAGE, Jan. 26) New Zealand-grown Jazz apples should be on U.S. retail shelves by early April.

In addition to bulk, smaller Jazz apples will be packed in bags, according to a news release from Auckland, New Zealand-based Enza Ltd., the creator of the Jazz.

The bags will be branded Jazz Snackers and targeted for kids’ lunchboxes.

Jazz apples are a cross between galas and braeburns.

New Zealand-grown Jazz apples are marketed exclusively in the U.S. by Vancouver, B.C.-based The Oppenheimer Group.

Jazz grown in Washington are co-marketed by Oppenheimer and Selah, Wash.-based Rainier Fruit Co.

These are the best apples I have ever tasted in my entire life!!! I have eaten many delicacies in my Marine Corps days. I thought Fugi apples were delicious. They are the perfect size, texture, and the taste is exploring! I am on a low sodium diet and give a testimony to other shoppers on how mouth watering delicious these apples are. Not to mention, it bears my namesake, JAZZ, WOW...4.97 a bag at Walmart .99 per apple at Food Lion. I always grab 2-3 bags per visit. This apple will having you singing, yum yum.
